2019 10 Google Specialist Workshop

Building digital capabilities

A series of workshops are being run this month to help boost the digital capabilities of local businesses.

DWC’s Events Coordinator Rachel Doolan says the West Coast is geographically isolated so local businesses must be creative and innovative about how they operate.

“Advances in digital technologies are overcoming many barriers enabling Coast businesses to carve out online niches and be competitive in wider markets."

To help build digital capabilities, DWC, in partnership with NZME, is hosting a series of Google specialist workshops in Greymouth and Westport. These workshops focus on what Google does and how you can use it to grow and develop your business.

Techspace in Greymouth is also running two hands-on digital-skills workshops. Eric Martini, from Techspace, says their website workshop will take you through the process of creating a website that is easy to update, great for search engines, and does not require special webmaster skills. Their digital graphics workshop focuses on creating images for your website, social media and newsletters.
